    I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts.
    I am no orator, as Brutus is,
    But (as you know me all) a plain blunt man
    That love my friend; and that they know full well
    That gave me public leave to speak of him.

I asked of my dear friend Orator Prig:
"What's the first part of oratory?" He said, "A great wig."
"And what is the second?" Then, dancing a jig
And bowing profoundly, he said, "A great wig."
"And what is the third?" Then he snored like a pig,
And puffing his cheeks out, he replied, "A great wig."
